DalzAle (1999) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle thanks to StFun! Dark brown pour, little bit of frothy carbonation and an aroma of peanut butter?! Flavor was good meld of brown sugar, a good malt base, toffee and a little bourbon on the finish.

Bacterial (1721) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pour at RBSG - thanks Greg! Bonus points for awesome label art and obscure rap music reference. Bitterness really dominated the taste, not really what I look for in a barrel aged barley wine.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. Brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of pine hops, bourbon, brown sugar and some tea. The flavor is a bit different. I get a lot of roasted malt and chocolate notes, as well as some oak, bourbon, pine and alcohol. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

phaleslu (6812) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2013
22 oz. bottle from alexsdad06- thanks again, Brad! 2012 release, bottle 9/192. Pours a cloudy amber color with a beige head. Bourbon barrel notes lead the way here, with vanilla, caramel, and brown sugar on top of some Belgian dried and dark fruit character. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, malty mouthfeel. Very good.
